Eugene joined the team in May 2012 after completing The College of Health Professions. He is an excellent dental technician, dedicating himself to improving his craft daily. As a strong young male among an office of many strong women, he has shown the expertise to develop great work relationships with everyone, while respectfully maintaining his “manhood.” He is passionate about learning dentistry in order to provide efficient care to patients while also helping them feel better about their dental health and overall well-being.
When not working in the office, Eugene can usually be found somewhere in an athletic facility, helping his three sons and many other children in the Austin metroplex play basketball. Coaching is a passion of his!
Mary graduated from the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston in 1971. She has been practicing for well over 46 years so far, with most of them spent right here at MMS Family Dentistry. Today, she is dedicated to providing the very best care to patients in need, whether they’re in need of a simple prophylactic polishing, scaling and root planing, or a full soft tissue management program to reduce periodontal pockets and promote new tissue growth.
Whatever the personal needs of each patient are, Mary is 100% committed to helping them achieve outstanding dental health. The well-being of one’s gums is essential to their overall quality of life! Outside of working hours, her free time is devoted to her family.
Jackie is a dental hygienist who’s passionate about knowledge and helping others. She is confident that she has the same goals as her patients, even before she’s met them: to live without oral discomfort and disease while also preserving healthy gums and teeth! Rest assured that you’ll always leave Jackie’s treatment chair with more than just a fresh smile – you’ll also be provided with valuable education and recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs. She really enjoys reading up on recent research in the oral healthcare field and sharing this information with patients and coworkers alike.
When she has free time outside of the office, Jackie’s favorite hobbies include participating in animal rescue and gardening.
Originally from Mission, Monica received her dental assistant training through The San Marcos Job Corps. She has worked in the practice for over 25 years, becoming an invaluable asset to our doctors. She has advanced expertise in all disciplines of clinical dentistry and can clearly communicate the importance of dental care to patients while always being mindful of what they really need and want.
Monica carefully and efficiently assists in caring for patients while also scheduling their appointments, moving them toward the completion of their treatment and to a healthy dental prognosis. All of that is accomplished in English or Spanish, both of which she speaks fluently – while still finding time to oversee the office’s OSHA program! Where would we be without her?

She wants to see that you receive nothing less than the best care and customer service possible.
Outside of MMS Family Dentistry, Hope loves spending quality time with her family and grandchildren. Her favorite hobbies include sewing and couponing.
LaRachels has been a member of our dental team for well over 12 years so far. She primarily serves as our hygiene treatment coordinator and scheduler while also backing up the financial department through reviewing treatment plan options and discovering affordable ways for patients to fund their desired care. She doesn’t want your services to drag on for years; instead, she’d like to help you cover the cost of personalized treatment plans in a short, properly scheduled period of time.
Outside of the office, LaRachels loves giving back to the community through local work, reading, traveling, playing basketball, and fine dining. Most of all, she always looks forward to spending lots and lots of quality time with her loved ones.
Viviana has been a member of our team for well over 15 years so far, and she never gets tired of wanting to help patients live healthier, happier lives.

In her spare time, you can usually find her with her family or playing in local softball games.
